Exposure 5 of 8
50 Russian Kettlebell Swings 32/24kg
Baller status for doing the swings unbroken, but 3-5 quick sets is appropriate. The run starts to 4th Ave, then to 3rd ave and back to the gym. Toes-to-Bars are the higher skill movement in this triplet chipper, so even small sets of 3-5 are ok. Sub T2Bs with Hanging Leg Raises, Hangng Knee Raises, or 60 AbMat Sit Ups as needed.

Behind the Desk: Juan Lopez
You all love the Underneath the Hoodie series and now we’re bringing back the Behind the Desk series, about our beloved and much appreciated Front Desk staff. These CrossFitters take care of the important duties of checking in our members, handling walk-ins, tidying up after classes, and so many other things that it would take forever to list them. They are the glue that holds this gym together.
Last time, it was Toni S. And now (drum roll, please), introducing another new front desker…
Name (and any nicknames): Juan Lopez, aka Juanito, aka JuanLo (no relation to JLo)
Where were you born and where did you grow up? I was born in New South Wales Australia, where my dad lives, and moved to Park Slope with my mom when I was almost ten years old, and spent the rest of my childhood here.
How long have you been CrossFitting, and how did you arrive at CFSBK? I took Foundations in January with Chris Fox and I’ve been CrossFitting at SBK ever since. I heard about CrossFit through my girlfriend, Jenna J., whose been at CFSBK for several years.
What are three (non essential like food and water) things you can’t live without? Pizza, pizza, and pizza.
Did you have any mentors or heroes growing up? Roberto Clemente, a right fielder for the Pirates in the 60s and 70s. In addition to being a great baseball player, he did a lot of good off the field, including volunteer and humanitarian work.
What are you up to when you’re not at 597 Degraw Street? When I’m not at the gym, I’m actually spending a lot of time at another gym, boxing. Boxing is huge part of my life, and eventually I would like to turn pro. I know I will regret it if I don’t give it a shot.
What’s the first movie or album you ever loved? Bad, by Michael Jackson, on cassette. I played that album over and over. (Still do)
